To get to the Public area walk in the main door & take a left..

I remember asking the same question. I would try to go in at least an hour beforehand. You have to go to public outpatients first(In the main door and turn left follw signs) . You queue here and they will create your chart. (You then have to queue there everytime you go as you collect your chart there each time. ) On the first app you will have a scan, Blood tests, meet a midwife who will take your medical history and also see a doctor. It will prob take 3-4 hours min as there will be a queue for each of these. Good luck

Hubby can go with you! The only time he'll have to wait outside a room for you is when you're doing blood tests but they only take a min. good luck and enjoy your scan!
